Current Grant Opportunity- 2020 New Colombo Plan Mobility Round

29 March 2019

The New Colombo Plan (NCP) is a signature initiative of the Australian Government, which aims to lift knowledge of the Indo-Pacific region in Australia by supporting Australian undergraduate students to study and undertake internships in the region.

The NCP Mobility Program’s strategic objectives are to:

  • support more study experiences in as many Indo-Pacific locations as possible;
  • enable a diverse range of Australian undergraduates to develop a greater understanding of the Indo-Pacific region and build people to people links;
  • fund innovative Mobility Projects that facilitate increased student mobility to the region and new or strengthened partnerships between universities and other organisations;
  • encourage a substantial number of Students to undertake longer-term study, in-country language study and Internships;
  • encourage private sector collaboration and sponsorship of the NCP Mobility Program;
  • engage NCP Students, Australian Universities, and other stakeholders in public diplomacy and outreach; and
  • continue to develop an active alumni community for Students to share their experiences, promote the NCP and continue to develop knowledge of and professional links within the Indo-Pacific region.

Mobility Projects must include at least one of the following components:

  • study;
  • in-country language study;
  • Internships (including clinical placements, practicums or artist residencies); or
  • Research.
